Will someone be there to catch him?

A friend of my mom recommended her niece’s blog and I have found it to be so inspiring!

This picture, and the post surrounding it caught my attention.

an orphan jumping into "uncle's" arms

The children in this orphanage in Uganda lack so much that we take for granted. Until they came to the orphanage, they lacked the bare necessities – a home, a bed, food.

But even now that they have those things, they still lack a forever family.

When I saw this picture and read about how the children could not trust “uncle” to catch them, even though they wanted to jump so badly, it drove this truth home. After all, isn’t that the most simple illustration of trust that there is – a child jumping into his daddy’s arms? Yet these orphans have no one they can trust.

Who will catch him when he jumps?
Will someone be there when she falls?

God designed children to be raised by parents. Parents who love them, parents who care for them, parents they can trust.

Every child needs a forever family.

Will you catch him? Will you be there for her?

  1. Beautifully put!

  2. This made me cry! Must be horrible to live without trust. Jesus is our ultimate TRUST.

  3. It is nice to “meet” you, Jordan! I love what you wrote. Thanks for loving the orphans, too. Bless you in your journey.
